The Los Angeles InDesign User Group provides unique educational experiences related to InDesign. We provide technical instruction and serve as an information exchange though presentations, field trips, printed documentation and an online presence.
We engage the difficult process of appealing to InDesign users of all skill levels and unique interests. Our approach is a smorgasbord of programs that range from the serious and technical to the fun and unexpected.
But most important of all, we provide an authentic user-to-user experience where individuals can ask questions, tell stories, inspire others or just hang out with kindred spirits who speak the language of page layout or digital publishing.
A particular focus of the group is increasing the acceptance of these publishing technologies in the established workplace as well as extending their reach into diverse and underserved communities.
LAIDUG is officially supported by Adobe Systems, Inc., but is an independent organization managed by local volunteers. The group is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization financed through the sale of raffle and event tickets, the purchase of branded items and the occasional tax-deductible contribution. All regular LAIDUG meetings and events are free to the public.
